Does Justin Timberlake dis Janet Jackson in an upcoming song?
That’s what some fans and foes are saying after Timberlake’s “Give It To Me” was leaked to the Internet. In the song — which the former Mouseketeer sings with Timbaland and Nelly Furtado — Timberlake sings:

“Could you speak up and stop mumbling?/I don’t think you came in clear/When you’re sitting on the top/it’s hard to hear you from way up there/I saw you tryin’ to act cute on TV/Just let me clear the air/We missed you on the charts last week/[Bleep] that’s right, you wasn’t there.”

People are buzzing that Timberlake is referring to Jackson’s appearance on Oprah Winfrey’s show, when she discussed the boob-baring incident, and wasn’t entirely kind to her former friend and singing partner. She said that Timberlake has reached out to her but that she hasn’t spoken to him since Nipplegate.

“Justin is totally ragging on Janet,” one poster noted on LiveJournal. Blogged another: “As far as I’m concerned, Timberlake is just playing around and being ‘street’ like the big man he is.”

Timberlake’s rep wasn’t available for comment at press time.

Timberlake and street should never be used in the same sentance.

I'm reading the lyrics over and over, and yet for some reason, I can't translate it as a diss to Janet. Wow, I heard of grasping straws but this is just rediculous.
